Peace at the Table of the Lord_or Else!

Tough Love in Christ’s Millennium

All but a few of My children are having problems in the area of humility, to greater or lesser degrees. Not because they are going out of their way to be mean but because you’re going through a non-stop fight of resistance against the temptations of satan down here in this world. And humility doesn’t mean saying things to deny your worth, because My children are worth more to Me than all the gold in the world. Humility means that you take an honest look at yourself before you criticize someone else in My Body. Each and every one of you were saved solely by My grace through faith in Christ Jesus’ atonement on the Cross of Calvary. You will have no other thing to your credit which would entitle you to come home to heaven to be with Me at the end of your earthly sojourn. And yet that one wonderful thing will be sufficient to meet My conditions for letting you in through the Pearly Gates.

When pride and self-righteousness ferments in somebody’s heart it gives rise to a mean carnal nature which takes a magnifying glass to make the most out of some other person’s imperfection. When My people gather round My Table, the first thing some of them reach for is knives as they silently wonder why so-and-so is standing next to them, for that one is surely their spiritual inferior and unworthy to partake of the blessings of the Kingdom of God. Their thoughts, which sometimes escalate to prayers of condemnation after the manner of the self-righteous Pharisee, are abhorrent to Me. The self-righteous believer is not at My Table to partake of the elements of salvation by faith, but to congratulate himself for being My pet favourite as he mentally digs out the tableware to take a dig at the one standing next to him, who is silently praying: “Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner saved by grace, or I will never make it.”

Be sober-minded and don’t ever be swift to judge another person’s heart and motivations. It is MY place to judge My own servants, for only before Me does each one stand or fall. Do not provoke Me, for when you refuse to love, you no longer continue in My goodness. Consider My warning for those who are like this. They cut themselves off from the flow of My life, and when they do they dry up and are as walking dead men. If I must, I will order you fat, self-satisfied ones to leave My Table and instead, invite the degenerates and down-and-outers to My feast, for they will appreciate the Garment of Salvation I provide for them. And when they put it on, their only thought and testimony will be: “Look what Jesus did for me. I once was lost, but now I am saved. I once was bound, but now I am free.”
